MLB Rumors

Jeremy Guthrie bailed out in no-decision
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie appeared to be on his way to his first loss of the season Wednesday against the Astros, but the bullpen and offense bailed him out in a 6-4 extra-innings win.

Guthrie was ultimately hurt by the long ball, as all four runs he allowed came on a pair of two-run homers. He was charged with four runs on six hits and a pair of walks over six innings, and left down 4-2. He struck out four while throwing 64 of 103 pitches for strikes.

The offense rallied to bail Guthrie out this time around, and he remains 2-0 through three starts. He carries a 4.34 ERA into his next start, set for Monday in Cleveland.

Bullpen lets Dallas Keuchel down in extra-innings loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel pitched well enough to win Wednesday against the Royals, but the bullpen couldn't hold onto his lead in a 6-4 loss.

Keuchel allowed just two runs in six innings of work for his second quality start in a row, and he left the game holding on to a 4-2 lead. He fell behind early on a second-inning solo home run, but limited the damage to just the two runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out five barters.

Keuchel is just 1-1 despite holding a 3.50 ERA after three starts. He will go for his second win in his next start, set for Monday in Seattle.

Jhoulys Chacin to make second rehab start Friday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin will continue his rehab assignment at Class A Modesta Friday, as he is scheduled to make his second start while recovering from a shoulder strain.

Head training Keith Dugger told MLB.com Chacin pitched better than his numbers might show. He allowed four runs on three hits and a pair of walks in 2 2/3 innings, but the team came away happy with his performance overall.

 "His pitch count was up, but a ground ball hit the bag and went over the third baseman's head, scored a run, then there was a base hit, and a guy lost one in the sun," Dugger said, after speaking with Chacin. "He said he couldn't control his sinker. It was moving a lot. But that's a feel pitch. It's also the next level -- a little bit better than going against extended spring guys. It's a very good first outing."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Padres were without starting third baseman Chase Headley Wednesday due to a bicep strain, and they revealed their emergency backup plan before the game. First baseman Yonder Alonso took groundballs during batting practice, with manager Bud Black watching, and Black seemed confident he could fill in if the need arose.

"We've got a third baseman who is day to day with a biceps strain, and if something happens tonight, we might need someone to go over there," Black told MLB.com. "[Alonso] has got good hands and a good arm. We're going to look at it a little."

Alonso has appeared in two games at third place in his major-league career, but played  it plenty before he got to college.
